All Cyberpunk 2077 DLC delayed to 2022 along with next gen upgrade

CD Projekt has updated its Cyberpunk 2077 content roadmap, revealing that none of the DLC will be released until 2022.

It became something of a running gag how often Cyberpunk 2077 would get delayed. Now, even after it launched, it seems CD Projekt needs extra time to get its DLC plans in order.

While there hasn’t been any formal announcement, the content roadmap for Cyberpunk 2077 on the game’s official website has been updated. It states that any free DLC, updates, or improvements won’t be available until 2022, so don’t expect any last minute patches before 2021 is up.

The news comes not too long after CD Projekt admitted that the native PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of Cyberpunk 2077, which it was adamant would be out by the end of the year, had to be pushed back to 2022. They’re currently slated for the first quarter of the year.

On top of that, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of The Witcher 3 were meant to have released earlier this month. Instead, CD Projekt has delayed them until the second quarter of 2022, so Witcher fans will need to wait even longer.

As disappointing as it is to hear, CD Projekt no doubt wants to avoid a repeat of Cyberpunk 2077’s launch. Despite being delayed several times, the game released with many bugs and glitches, which affected the visuals and gameplay, particularly for last gen consoles. It generated such a backlash that the studio had to offer refunds. It’s also still facing lawsuits from its investors over it.

Since CD Projekt had to shift its priorities to fixing Cyberpunk 2077, it seems it fell behind on DLC development, so this delay is hardly surprising.

Exactly what the DLC entails is still a mystery, although the game did receive a new car and two new jackets in August so you can probably expect more cosmetic DLC in the future.

It may also include multiplayer features. The multiplayer mode was meant to be sold as its own spin-off, but CD Projekt has reconsidered and is thinking of incorporating multiplayer into the main game.

Cyberpunk 2077 is available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Stadia. The Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 versions will release in 2022.
